HI Cindy, I have validated a couple of my books over the last year but as a rule I don't. For example I just finished the Calcium Bomb and it is almost a pristine copy but I will let Monica validate it since she is really interested in it. I think it is good two have two people look over a book before it gets released to the public. What does make it harder is when a book is scanned and the scanner doesn't do a once over, spell check, check pages and page numbers. IF we didn't have people like you Cindy there would be a lot more books getting rejected because the validator just can't get it into an acceptable form.

Some books have been sitting for months and months, and although some of us take them, I think we are few, and some books will never get into the collection otherwise.
